One of the best things you can do is go to CardRatings.com and look for cards under the category "Student." There you will find a variety of student credit cards. There are point valued cards, no cosigner cards, general purpose cards, limited history cards and much more. Some APRs are moderate and some are high. Some have balance transfers and some do not.
Student credit cards can be a helpful financial tool if used in a responsible manner, but can also lead to staggering student credit card debt if used irresponsibly. Credit education is essential. So determine your needs, locate a card, and use it to build a responsible history.
